Activities

Since 2005, the Massachusetts Albanian American Society/BESA was slowly created through the efforts of dozens of people in the local Albanian community. A number of cultural and social events were held, in which MAASBESA was either the lead organizer or a supporting organization.

 

Gradually, we reached the point where we felt the community was strong enough to be able to formally create and legally register a not-for-profit organization in Massachusetts.
